The London Store actually claims it was the first in the world to set their Christmas Decorations, back in October. As it is tricky to take these allegations as true, we’d rather focus on what’s actually displayed in the window. The theme around the decors is ”With love from..”, a tribute to London, Manchester and Birmingham, the three cities the stores call home. In it, we can see 5000 hand-painted Brussels sprouts and a marching band, commuters in golden bikes and a large breasted Robin.
The Tiffany’s on Bond Street had its decorations imagined and planned by the brand’s former artistic director and Vice President, Gene Moore. The window has in its display backdropped constellations, to illuminate the window under the theme ”A Tiffany’s Holiday”.
This year, Harrods has joined forces with the Italian luxury brand Dolce and Gabbana. And there’s a special treat in this year’s window, as it will feature Stefano Gabanna and Domenico Dolce in the form of puppets, bringing a substantial dose of fun and Italian Spirit, to the world-famous store.

As a part of the brand’s campaign ”Together we are Merrier”, The Piccadilly store brought inanimate objects to life in this year’s window. An elephant, a lion and an ostrich are seen delivering the famous F&M hampers in a sort of rocket ship until the ends of the earth, whilst a never-ending feast goes on the floor.
Recreating the joy of ”the Night Before Christmas”, and counting with a representation of the store’s cheeky rooftops, but with sparkling lights and fluffy snow falling over them, Liberty seems focused on getting the Christmas Joy on its customers. Inside, you find fluffy Christmas trees and preserved green furs, dressed in eucalyptus.
